... the place for adult learners to start or start again.
We know that adults need to balance family, career, and community with educational responsibilities. That's why Mitchell offers flexible part-time study and degree programs year-round - to help adult students reach their goals sooner. We also recognize that what you learn in life and work is valued, so we welcome prior learning assessments (PLA) that grant college credit for what you already know. Don't start from scratch. Consider "Credit for Prior Learning." Learn more here.
